Description for Chevrolet Camaro 1986


Absolutely one of the cleanest IROC's you'll find. Other than tires and battery, car is 100% ALL ORIGINAL. True Survivor car. Interior still looks like new. No scratches on gauges. No cracks in dash. Paint still shines like new. Absolutely beautiful. A battery kill switch was added under the hood to easily disconnect the battery when the car is sitting.

This time capsule has been garaged kept is entire life (with a cover on it in the garage) and it shows.

The all original bright red code 81U code is stunning. The optional cloth seats code AR9 look as if they have never been sat in. The pictures speak for themselves, this car is stunning

I have ALL the original paperwork (thick binder comes with the car) for the car including the original window sticker, build sheet, original dealer order sheet, brochure, service records, etc, etc. Collector's dream car with VERY VERY LOW MILEAGE AT UNDER 20,000 MILES. I also had a new duplicate window sticker made up for use at car shows.

Autocheck shows 4 owners. However, two of those were dealers that purchased the car to sell it. Really, it has had one prior actual owner to myself.

This was my dream car in 1986. I owned one back then and about three years ago, decided to find another. I couldn't have found a better one! However, for my own personal needs, I actually wanted one that I could modify and customize it to make it my own. However, this car was just too perfect to mess with its perfection. I didn't have the heart to make any changes to it. As such, aside from the occasional drive around the block to keep the juices flowing, it has been a complete garage queen ever since, just sitting there looking beautiful every day. I admire looking at it every time I take the custom fit satin indoor cover off of it (included with sale).

Last year, I took it to the Chevy dealer to have them go through the entire car and complete all necessary service. They stated it was in incredible shape. No rust. No leaks. Just an amazing time capsule from 1986. ALL fluids changed. Less than 100 miles since. Car passed California smog check.

It is a late 1986 build, thus has the much better looking 145 MPH speedometer.

Car was apparently ordered with collector status in mind. Has manual windows and door locks (items that commonly break as cars age). No T-tops (that common leak after several years). But, was otherwise fully optioned with the upgraded interior seating. Split folding rear seat. Carpeted floor mats (wrapped in plastic still), Deluxe compartment trim, intermittent wipers, interior roof console with flashlight still in place, window defogger, powered hatch release and soft close pull down, Front and Rear disc brakes, 4 speed automatic with overdrive, tilt wheel. auxiliary lighting, halogen headlamps.

I hate to even think of selling this car. But, I'm still young enough that I still want one that I can go modify it to be a toy car (upgrade to the late model engine, put a custom coil over suspension, supercharger, etc, etc). Again, because of how beautiful and perfect this car is, just didn't have the heart to tear this one up for my own personal kicks and giggles. It's just such a rare collector in too good of shape to not remain that way and shown off for exactly what it is. Unfortunately, I'm not rich enough to keep this one and go get a higher mileage one for me to tear apart and customize it, so I do have to let this one go. In three years, I've put less than 150 miles on the car. Per the AutoCheck report (see photo), this car has had less than 1,000 miles put on it since.

Check my feedback. What very few cars I do sell on rare occasions, are what I say they are. I do also have to note what flaws do exist on this nearly 37 year old car (not many).

It was driven for 19,000+ miles. As is typical of almost any car, there are the standard small rock nicks in various areas of the paint. All are small and you have to look closely to find them, but to a perfectionist, they do exist none the less. Could be touched up, but in the interest of keeping this thing as original as possible, they have not been.

Only two slightly larger areas were touched up to protect from further chipping or rust. There is one inch long chip in the rear bumper cover on the side that was filled in with factory matching touch up paint to prevent it from chipping any further. And one inch to inch and a half scratch next to the antenna on the RF fender that was also touched up for the same reason. Other than, all others are the minor small rock chips you see on just about any car within a year, let alone 37 years. Again, the paint still shines like new on this car.

As is almost inevitable with the big front lower spoiler lip on the front of these things, there are some minor scrapes on the bottom of the front portion of the nose. again, not touched up in the interest of keeping everything original.

The wheels are original and look great, but have some minor clear coat peeling. No curb rash or scrapes, but as is typical of a 37 year old car, the clear coat has peeled some over time.

Finally, as is also quite common of these F-body camaro's from the 1980's, especially those without T-Tops, the headliner, while in perfect surface condition, does have some areas where it appears the glue has come loose, giving the appearance of some bubbling. The fabric is in perfect condition, but does have that bubbling effect as a result. Could be re-glued back in place. Again, didn't touch it to keep it original as possible.

But, that's about it. That's where my known list of "flaws" ends.

It is a nearly 37 year old car. No 37 year old car is going to be "perfect". But, you'll be hard pressed to find one that's in as good of condition as this one is. I've seen several IROC's with fewer mileage that have looked more worn than this one.

I'm not in a rush to sell it, but the reserve price is WELL BELOW what many higher mileage cars that showed notably more wear and tear have sold for. It's going to break my heart to see it go. It truly was and still is my "dream car". In 1986, my custom license plate was "niksdrm"! But, I know I'll have peace of mind knowing that whoever buys it, will appreciate it for the amazing survivor car that it is. A true time capsule from 1986.
